    Yes that's right - the Acura DPi and Cadillac DPi-V.R from the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship are set to feature in the upcoming GRID racing game.


    Spectacular cars in their own right, both the Acura and Cadillac DPi machines from the American IMSA series are set to form part of the base content for the new GRID arcade racer from Codemasters, joining up with what is expected to be a bumper amount of content in the newly refreshed racing game franchise.

    Although we don't yet have a full list of cars and tracks coming to GRID, we do know that one of the key aspects of the upcoming game will be diversity and variety, with plenty of customisation options and depth of content within the game. With the inclusion of at least two prototype cars confirmed recently, joining TCR specification touring cars, street stock machines and GTE's, we've already started to get a pretty good looking picture of where Codemasters are taking the new title.

    As well as the two DPi favourites, Codemasters have also confirmed the following will be part of GRID when it releases later this year...
    • Aston Martin Vantage GT4 – GT
    • Honda Civic Type R TCR – Touring
    • Mazda RX-7 Panspeed – Tuner
    • Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Time Attack – Tuner
    • Renault R26 – Open-Wheel
    • Subaru Impreza WRX – Tuner
    • Subaru WRX STI TC-2 – Touring
    • SRT Viper GTS-R – GT
    With this latest batch of cars now known to the public, the next few weeks and months should be an exciting time as Codemasters continue to tease fans ahead of the full game release on October 11th.

    GRID will release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC October 11th 2019.

    I am not sure if I am confused or hopeful. Why would you spend the time and money to put the DPis on a grid with those other cars? Hopefully they will fill out the IMSA grid.

    Devs have recycled some cars from others Codies' products but not so important. I just want to have confirmation that :
    1) AI was deeply recoded after its failure on Grid Autosport (stupid and brutal AI without any ability to evolve based on traffic)
    2) Physics are well balanced, like previous simcades (Race Driver Grid was the best for my part).

    Why IMSA prototypes? Some LMP1/LMP2s and Le Mans would be a banger...

    A matter of IP I think : IMSA competitors rights should be less expensive than ACO contenders.

    Why not? It's about the only major class left that isn't officially represented somewhere (that I know of).

    As far as I know, iRacing holds the licence but does not have the staff to fill the grid, there is one DP and great GTE cars and older GT3s but nowhere near a full grid.

    They are already announced Porsche, Ferrari and Corvette GTEs, so you have five different IMSA cars right now.

    I really can't see them making that mistake again, and the gameplay video clearly shows cockpit view.

    Where's the Mazda? Is it impossible to get a full grid on modern racing games?
